Blast from the past!

So I got today's comic uploaded as well as a "treat": a page from the ol' sketchbook o' doom. The page contains a couple of rough comics from my original conception of the Mercenary Missionary storyline, well before I'd even though of incorporating it into the Deity Kit story (or before I'd even thought of a Deity Kit). The dates on the two comics place them in July of 2003, so the idea's been kicking around for some time (that would've been the summer Clyde was staying with me in Norman. The Mercenary Missionary story was originally his idea). I think what I've done with the story is much stronger now than it was in 2003. I've grown as a storyteller.

Not that that's necessarily saying a whole lot, mind you.

Also, today's actual comic features three cameos by real people I know. I'll buy a beer for anyone who can recognize the folks in the three panels, including the bearded chap we only see part of in panel three.


Sorry there's no comic yet, folks. I selfishly chose to spend last night hanging out with Michelle to celebrate her birthday and then getting a decent night's sleep over drawing a comic for you. I'll get something drawn after work this afternoon. Hell, I may even be nice and do more than one comic to make up for it.

Today was a long day, and I'm pretty damn tired, so I'll draw you a comic when I get home from work tomorrow. For now, I sleep.

Son of Narrative Causality

Hope everyone had a happy 4th of July, whether you celebrated it as a holiday or not (what? It has to be a holiday before it's allowed to be happy?). I did many interesting things and had a splendid time.

Monday was my mother's birthday, so happy birthday to her.

Narrative causality, of course, is the idea of Murphy's Law, basically. Saying something like "how could it get any worse?" or "it's quiet...too quiet" instantly leads to something worse happening or all hell breaking loose. It's a fun literary device, really.
